PIOTROWSKI Laura

Her illustrations appeared in Canadian Children’s Annuals in the last half of the 1970’s. She was quite versatile in her techniques employing drawings, white on black, water colour and drawing and colour. As well as Laura Urquhart she illustrated “Susan Super Sleuth” written by William Ettridge an ex R.A.F. pilot who migrated to Canada and settled in Hamilton. To Susan Super Sleuth, she brought a quite different visual style from Laura Urquhart.
